Webinar – Claims, Variations and Records – the art of getting paid during periods of uncertainty

During these uncertain times and once the construction sector begins to get back to work, one of the key challenges will be getting paid.

In this 60 minute presentation followed by Q&A, HKA considers some of the practicalities of ensuring that parties are paid what they are entitled.

Based on vast experience of international and domestic construction projects, Andrew Drennan and Paul Ives discuss the challenging issues that the construction sector faces in getting paid, with practical tips and advice in ensuring claims and variations are appropriately presented, as well as the importance of record keeping.

Topics Include:

  • Claims & variations – what are the key issues going to be?
  • Communication – what to do in NEC/FIDIC/JCT contracts
  • Records – what records should we keep and how should these be recorded/stored and presented effectively?
  • How to present a robust claim
  • What if the claim fails? – a brief overview of ADR techniques
